HOME MADE BURGER
We don't have this very often, but when we do we really enjoy it. To make the beef burgers was easy enough - take some LEAN minced beef, add some finely chopped raw onion, salt, pepper and garlic and mix together. Knead the mixture for a couple of minutes until it starts to stick together, then shape into patties. We had ours plain - but you could add mustard, chilli, cheese... whatever you fancy. In the end we know what goes into our burger - and it's all fresh!
After making the mash yesterday, we had the leftover potato skins. We sprayed these with some good olive oil and sprinkled with salt then put into a very hot oven to crisp up. According to the internet cooked potato skins are around 50 calories per 25g, so we had about 200 calories. The large burger was about 300 calories, and the egg about 100 calories. We didn't have a bun with the burger, because there wasn't one in the house! We had a side salad instead (with a drizzle of olive oil) and a spoonful of barbecue sauce so our meal was around 650 calories.
